  • Girish April 4, 2011 1:50 am

    @velu
    If you do Rs.98 GPRS e-recharge then u have to pay rs 98 only

    If you activate by SMS then also it will deduct 98 rs only

    Then where is 10% extra benefit by SMS based activation ????

    I got ported from airtel to bsnl coz of pathetic service and balance deduction and now BSNL is very much pathetic in case of customer service no one bother’s to receive call even after waiting for 20 to 30 minutes. Anyone knows bsnl nodal officer email id (Karnataka).

  • selvam March 3, 2011 11:15 pm

    @Abhijith no friend mnp will be a real villain for cheating operators…BSNL wil survive ,should survive for betterment of our society they are only maintaining norms in all respects..so seems to b like that..we will wait and see

  • selvam March 3, 2011 11:11 pm

    @Minerva it is not tax if it is tax it wil go to govt..they are mentioning it as other charges

  • deb March 1, 2011 12:43 pm

    Kolkata circle mein bsnl k bare mein ek baat bol sakta hun ki after launching 1p/2secs promo bsnl is best now……network quality is also good within kolkata……but aircel, docomo and idea also providing 1p/2secs promo but they are new here, so, bsnl is much more reliable…….

  • Abhijith March 1, 2011 12:20 pm

    Lol . . Bsnl is loosing out its numbers . . MNP is the real villan for bsnl

  • rajiev March 1, 2011 10:54 am

  • velu March 1, 2011 7:44 am

    @Abhijit
    the are not taking service charge.if we do a 99 e-recharge it will cost 99 rs only for us. the same amount has taken by this method. if we do a full talktime recharge and then activate we will get 10% extra benifit. normally i do like this for activating GPRS packs

  • Kanaga Deepan N March 1, 2011 1:05 am

    Manivas :
    BSNL realized at last, recharging bsnl numbers is very hectic. Since, most of the e recharge centres don’t support bsnl. And its online recharge site is a mess

    Very Very TRUE…

    hmm bhai eta kaaj korchha…its working bhai…thank you…….

  • Minerva February 28, 2011 7:31 pm

    From this I realize one thing. All private operators are deducting full amount, if u activate thro’ sms. Only BSNL is less the service tax. Bcoz while recharging talktime they deduct service tax and the balance amt will be given. Private operators once again get tax from us.

  • Gourav February 28, 2011 6:26 pm

    this service should be started in other circles also.

  • dhamodharan February 28, 2011 1:13 pm

    Nice and flexible one.BSNL really trying to user friendly wait watch only is the answer

  • Abhijit February 28, 2011 1:09 pm
